Hi there,

I've updated from last version (already installed as .deb) to this new version (on up-to-date mobian), now Axolotl won't start anymore (nothing seems to happen when starting via icon).
I've already tried: Completely deinstall Axolotl, reboot, reinstall, start (fail), rebooted again, start (fail).

If I try to start Axolotl in terminal, these error message appears (after a strange "file is not a database" debug info):
Code:
ERRO[001] '/home/mobian/.config/textsecure.nanuc/electron/vendor/electron-linux-arm64/electron' exited with code: 1

then stopping worker und
Code:
[axolotl-electron] main: creating window failed: context canceled.


Any suggestions what I could try to fix this? Sad

Best Regards,
Dante
(BTW... THANKS FOR YOUR WORK ON THIS PROJECT ARNO!!! Smile )


You're very welcome!

Could you please try to rename the following folder by adding some digits at the end
Code:
/home/mobian/.config/textsecure.nanuc/electron/vendor/electron-linux-arm64/

and restart Axolotl via terminal. This will force Axolotl to re-install Electron and hopefully solve your problem. If Axolotl is working fine, you can delete the renamed folder completely.

Let me know, if this works for you.

Cheers!

Thank you Arno. Smile That didn' work (error message that a subdirectory of the renamed directory is missing).
But: I have deinstalled axolotl and manually searched and removed every folder or file somehow connected to/named like axolotl or textsecure, rebooted, reinstalled.. and it works again. Big Grin

One difference to the old version I've noticed:
I can no longer set a password (the password settings menu, and after trying to set one the whole app (until restart), is empty). Seems like a bug?
But afaik that has nothing todo with the messaging but only protecting the locally stored data, right? (On a encrypted mobian not really necessary I guess. Wink )

Again, thanks for your help! Smile

Glad to hear it worked somehow! But there must be a convenient way to re-install Electron and I can't remember how. But I'm on it.

Regarding the encryption password bug: Yes, I just tested it and it seems broken. I will open an issue on github to let the devs know. And yes, it just affects the local data.

Can you please share with a beginner how did you manually search and remove everything linked to axolotl?

Im also pressing the icon but nothing is starting even after waiting 10+ minutes. Ive tried purging axolotl and reinstalling but it leads to the same issue.

First I followed all remove variants described here , just for sure:
Code:
sudo apt remove --purge axolotl
sudo rm /usr/share/applications/axolotl.desktop
sudo rm -rf go
sudo apt remove --purge npm nodejs mercurial golang python

Then I opened the file explorer Dolphin and used the search option to find all remaining files/directories with names containing "axolotl" and deleted them, then did the same step for "textsecure".

Then I rebooted and followed the install instructions:
Code:
git clone https://github.com/nuehm-arno/axolotl-mobian-package
cd axolotl-mobian-package && sudo apt install ./axolotl_1.0.0-1_arm64.deb

SORRY for the late reply Sad , was on holiday...

Have you managed to work everything out or do you still need some help?

Hello there,

the latest update of libwpewebkit-1.0-3 from v2.30.6-1 to v2.32.1-1 makes Axolotl in daemonized setup unusable with the browser "cog" on my system.

Here you can find the old version, if you have the same problem and want to downgrade the library:

https://ftp.be.debian.org/debian/pool/main/w/wpewebkit/

Installation from the download folder via

Code:
sudo apt install ./libwpewebkit-1.0-3_2.30.6-1_arm64.deb

Hopefully, there will be another update soon.

And to prevent apt from updating the package again, use the following

Code:
sudo apt-mark hold libwpewebkit-1.0-3

("unhold" reverts this)


Cheers

Thanks! However I'm running into a problem - what's happening is after the first run which does take a little while, a nearly blank display pops up saying "404 page not found". (I did delete the textsecure.nanuc directories from a previous installation under .config and .local.) Looking at the terminal output it appears that before the 404 error axolotl was trying to popup a dialog box for entering a phone number but that never appears.

I just
  1. backed up the textsecure directories
  2. did a git pull
  3. followed by a sudo apu install ./axolotl
and all seems fine.

There is no need (AFAIK) to delete the textsecure directories unless you want a fresh/unadulterated install.
